Evelyn Road, WimbledonContemporary Kitchen
Extend off the rear of a Victorian terrace to yield an amazing family space.
Phase II of this project for us, we were asked to extend into the side and off the rear as much as planning would allow, then create a light, sleek space for a design-driven client.
While wraparound extensions are ubiquitous (and the best way to enhance living space) they are never boring. Our client was driven to achieve a space people would talk about and so it’s has proved.
This scheme has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on Houzz; we think the neat lines and bold choices make it an excellent ideas platform for those looking to create a kitchen diner with seating space and utility area.
The brief is a common one, but each client goes on to work with us on their own unique interpretation.

A strong, stylish worktopIf you like to cook, your kitchen worksurfaces will see some action, so as well as good looks, they’ll need strength and durability. To help you decide which type of worktop to go for, consider exactly how you use your kitchen.Think about how much wear and tear particular areas in your space will get, as this will determine how durable your worktops need to be. In this practical space, for example, the designers have chosen two types of material. The preparation areas near the oven and on the island have a tactile wooden surface, but the sink area is fitted with a waterproof stainless-steel worktop.
Choose a magic slotThis example also keeps the kitchen just outside of the extension, which again has been used for the dining table. But where three simple roof windows were used in the previous example, here a ‘slot’ roof light creates a swathe of daylight over the kitchen and lifts the whole effect.
